Have you found Mary in 1871 - either as Beer or E*art? -  I've found a possible but it doesn't quite fit.

Hi Gadget, we have nothing definite for the 1871 census, we can see in later records that daughter Mary was born around 1871 in Aldershot and other searches have shown that David's regiment were stationed there in 1871 but again nothing concrete.

Everything seems to point towards the Aldershot area for that time.

One other possibly strange thing is that we have record for Mary Anne Beer born in Kent during 1840 being baptised in Dover during 1870, we are not sure if that is anything to do with the possible religious background of David

Was she christenend again into a different denomination in 1870? https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/J7FD-G2N I think this is the right entry given the parents names I have seen quoted for her.

Just thincking more widely:

Where did you get her surname from? If it was from childrens birth certs then it could be that she was widowed when she married David, women usually have their current surname on the cert/index and the maiden name is not always shown.

It's just that I've found a Mary Ann Evans in Aldershot on the 1871, aged 31, b. Kent. Husband was in the Queen's 9th Royal Regiment of Lancers

RG10/817/121/34

I've not followed this family up yet.

Added - they're in Kent in 1881 so that's not her  :(

Also a Donald  and Mary Ann Gordon who don't seem to figure after 1871

How about (what looks like!) McEwart for a David born c. 1833 in 1871 at Aldershot? That David shows as married (another reason maybe why no marriage may show for Mary Ann and David). An adopted daughter shows with them.

What was David's rank when he left the army, GedB?

Ref for 1871 RG10/819/119/7

That is the one! Need to try and find them in 1881...back to scratch if they show for 1881  :-\ Can't easily see a marriage through the 1860s for them in England (but they may not have married there).

I was originally tracking the very chequered life of Mary Anne Beer, one of fifteen children from Henry Beer and his two wives and her early life in Kent was equally interesting, David Ewart just happened along and has ended up giving me nightmares.

The possibility of an adopted child is very interesting as we are fairly sure Mary had at least one child before meeting David as one turns up in later census returns (with an illegitimate child of her own) living with the family in Lancashire and then links the name Smith into the family, we did find a possible record of a marriage in Kent for Smith / Beer that fell in well but lead to nothing.

Although I am pretty sure that we have David in camp in Hartley Wintney in the 1871 census I can only assume that Mary was a camp follower and somehow the census passed her by. If I could find record of either the marriage (if there was one) or birth of their daughter around that time then I would have a chance of getting some answers for Davidís roots but as I said earlier the early 1870s seem to have passed Mary Ann by and the Kirkcudbright searches for David seem to have come up blank as well.
